Awning Canopies / September 5, 2019 / Sabrina Carey
Of course if awnings and other shade structures improve the messaging of a restaurant and are a patron s first impressions canopies very often round out a restaurant-goers final thoughts. While less focuses on literal messaging than on style and atmosphere canopies extend a restaurant s outdoor footprint adding a sense of elegance as indoor amenities are brought outside. Built from a similar selection of material as stated in the previous paragraph canopies can still retain the natural collective body heat from guests (and hot food) with only the most minor of fold-down fabric walls. And as fall weather progresses and the temperatures drop these simple measures can be augmented with propane heaters turning outdoor dining into a year round possibility - even in some of the country s harsher winter climates.
Furthermore domestic travel is expected to be on the rise so vacationers can enjoy the feel of a tropical island without going abroad. In order to succeed at selecting an appropriate canopy awning or cabana an experienced supplier registered with the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) is a necessity. Checking references will ease your mind. Choose a company that also provides maintenance services to promise the longevity of the product. Be sure to clear maintenance and warranty issues before construction begins. Both structure and form are vital here as a beautiful design as well as a sturdy and reliable one is essential. Hiring a reputable and experienced company provides the security that your vision combined with professional advice and architecture will be properly executed.
The second reason for canopies is protection against the weather elements. In restaurant patios or cafe outdoor areas a folding arm awning is very popular. You would not want to have a meal in a restaurant patio while you are baking under the sun would you? Having your cold drink outside a cafe is never ideal if you are directly under the sun with no shade. When the rainy season starts getting drenched while having a meal in the restaurant patio or a hot drink outside the cafe is not a pleasing experience. Customers will look for comfort and with canopies you can provide them with just exactly what they are looking for. Another advantage of canopies and other commercial awnings is great savings on cooling costs especially during the hot days of the summer season.
